Your analysis makes sense - I experimented with changing the schema as 
you suggest, and the following popped out:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<tns:entry xmlns:xsi="";
<name>Caroline Maynard</name>
<more stuff here/>

which probably is technically correct, as it now has the author in the 
atom namespace. However the problem for me is that this particular 
server still doesn't like it - it gives me a response code 400, but 
instead of the "Could not parse" message I got previously, there's now 
no accompanying message.

OK, here are the gory details. These are mostly open (therefore 
typically multi-valued) sequenced types, which is why the code is rather 

         $entry = $document->getRootDataObject();

        $entry_author = $entry->createDataObject('author');
        $entry_author->name[] = $author;

        $entry_title = $entry->createDataObject('title');

        $entry_content = $entry->createDataObject('content');
        $entry_content->type = 'html';
              "I posted this from PHP using SDO");

        $category_content = $entry->createDataObject('category');
        $category_content->term = "bookmark";
        $category_content->scheme =

        if ($categories) {
          $categories = (array)$categories;
          foreach ($categories as $category) {
            $category_content = $entry->createDataObject('category');
            $category_content->term= $category;

        $link_content = $entry->createDataObject('link');
        $link_content->href = $link;
